Gelding by Society Queen out of an Invincible Spirit mare. Closely related to five-time winner running between 5½ and 6f, Goodwood Cruiser. Pleasing debut at Fairyhouse last month and not to be taken lightly here.
Kitten's Joy colt cost 220,000gns as a yearling. Has performed adequately in a couple of starts for current connections shaping like a drop in trip would suit.
Gregorian gelding out of a Pivotal mare. Cost €20,000 as a yearling. Half-brother to several winners including Weekendatbernies winner over 7f and 6f victor Shannon. Best watched on debut.
Gelding by No Nay Never out of a Bering mare. Disappointed on latest start at the Curragh when last seen in August following a number of promising efforts over the summer. Needs to step up on Polytrack debut.
French import by Mukhadram out of a Linamix mare. Three-race maiden in France and recently left the yard of Freddie Head for just 9,000gns. Best watched on stable debut unless market vibes suggest otherwise.
Lightly raced, four-race maiden nothing of note in a couple of starts in 2017 and when last seen in 2018. Impossible to make a case for in the closer.
Failed to build on a career best effort at the Curragh in August when finding no extra at Listowel last month over 6½f on soft ground. Needs to step up on recent starts to play a part here.
Daughter of Dylan Thomas out of a Danetime mare. Cost €14,500 as a yearling. Three-race maiden likely to be suited by the move into handicap company in future.
Lilbourne Lad filly out of a Cape Cross mare. Sent off at big prices in four career starts so far before running accordingly on each occasion and unlikely to be involved at the finish in this contest.
Canford Cliffs filly, half-sister to a useful middle distance performer. Well held when down the field in four of desolate efforts so far. Hard to place any faith in.
Exceed And Excel filly who cost £70,000 as a yearling and shaped well on Kempton debut back in May. First run since leaving the George Scott yard and has a significant jockey booking in place.
Daughter of Kodiac out of a Teofilo mare. 11,000gns as a yearling. Unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest on debut run.
Maiden but placed seven times in the UK for James Bethell. Beaten a neck at Navan over 5½f on good to firm ground before disappointing over C&D last month. Worth a market check with returning cheekpieces.
